Let’s celebrate Indigenous People Day with prayers and fellowship

Dear friends,

As we reflect on our individual lives and our place in history, as we reevaluate how history shapes us and how every new moments gives us a chance to build a new future, let us focus on what nourishes our spirituality and is conductive to unity:

“Bahá’u’lláh has drawn the circle of unity, He has made a design for the uniting of all the peoples, and for the gathering of them all under the shelter of the tent of universal unity. This is the work of the Divine Bounty, and we must all strive with heart and soul until we have the reality of unity in our midst, and as we work, so will strength be given unto us. Leave all thought of self, and strive only to be obedient and submissive to the Will of God. In this way only shall we become citizens of the Kingdom of God, and attain unto life everlasting.”
~ ‘Abdu’l-BaháParis Talks

Let us celebrate Native American Day with prayers and fellowship

Instead of celebrating Columbus Day, this Monday, October 12th 2015, let us celebrate Indigenous People Day with prayers and fellowship.

Arlington Prayer Station and Interfaith Spiritual Conversation “Indigenous People Day”

We will start at 7 pm with dinner and continue with prayers and a conversation on how we can truly celebrate our unity in diversity without sugarcoating the painful history. Along with the discussion, we will uplift and refresh our souls with inspiring songs and we’ll conclude with tea and sweets.

We’ll also say prayers for anyone in need, so if you can’t join us and would like to request prayers please contact me.

Please let me know if you plan on coming so I can plan the refreshments and send you the directions! Until then, enjoy this beautiful performance by Kevin Locke Native Dance Ensemble.

 

“Let your vision be world-embracing, rather than confined to your own self.”
(From the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh)
